Teaching Verbs to standard 1. !!!!!!!

By Madhurie Singh, July 12, 2009

My son has started learning verbs in english.
He has very easily picked up the concept of Verbs as Action words !

So I thought of doing a bit of research in helping him learn better and applying the concept than just mugging up.

So I made him read a small story book and asked him to identify all the action words. And wow, he not only did underline them, he came back with a few more!

The next play exercise I did, involved my younger son who is in Nursery.
The younger one had to name any object he saw in the room. And then my older son had to speak out all the action related to that object.

So the first object uttered was “Apple”.
And now both my sons were throwing action words at me, where I was writing them down like a kid taking dictation! 🙂
So we had several action words as Verbs that we know . Eg eating, chewing, cutting, peeling and throwing was the last one added by my younger son 🙂

Similarly we moved to objects like football, eraser, rubber band, car. The last one was mother !
The notebook has two full pages of action words dedicated to the word “Mother” !

I plan to play today with them with other kids of the society and do a dumb charade of “Verbs”. Let’s see how they enjoy! 🙂

Happy teaching and mothering dears 🙂
